Description
Turner Classic Movies is proud to present TCM Originals, a new line of special programs produced by TCM and exclusive to the network.

PRIVATE SCREENINGS:
Included are two specials from TCM's Private Screenings franchise: Osborne interviews renowned actress of screen and stage Liza Minnelli, who shares highlights of her remarkable career and details of her personal life as the daughter of actress Judy Garland and director Vicente Minnelli; then, the cameras turn on Osborne himself, as he discusses his his lifelong love of movies and career as an entertainment columnist and film historian with actor Alec Baldwin.

LIVE FROM THE TCM CLASSIC FILM FESTIVAL:
Also included are three installments of Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival, recorded before a live audience in historic Hollywood: Osborne's 2010 conversation with Luise Rainer, the first woman to win back to back Best Actress Oscars®, for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) and The Good Earth (1937); a 2012 interview with Kim Novak, best remembered for her roles in Picnic (1955) and Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958), who reveals to Osborne secrets of her career and personal life; a candid 2013 conversation with Academy Award® winning actress Eva Marie Saint (On the Waterfront, 1955).

Also included is a special essay by journalist and frequent TCM contributor Roger Fristoe, which provides biographical and professional information on the guests featured in each interview to help the viewer appreciate some of the most surprising and important revelations in these productions.

      Comments about this product:

      All classic movie fans have to thank Robert Osborne for doing his homework
      and to further a deeper appreciation of "cultural" works turn out by so-called
      movie factories, I can't imagine that screen legends like Garbo and BetteDavis
      were really sliding into oblivion had it not been for dedicated journalists
      like Osborne came to the "rescue". Three cheers for you , Robert ! Three
      cheers for TCM too! Lets have more of the interviews on DVDs soon !

                  Helps to educated on certain aspects of movie making history. Great to get to know these characters better. Robert Osborne is a master interviewer and his story itself is very compelling. Please make more of these.

                    All of the interviews were interesting. I learned more about the actors as actors and also as people. Additionally, the two oldest actors pointed to walking for longevity. That advice is not only solid but doable. We often see actors as the other, and all of the interviews showed they are like us, even though they have exceptional experiences. They showed the human side of the movie business, rather than all the hype.

                            Dear Robert and Joe etc,
                            I watch nohing but TCM, Im an insomniac because some of the best films are shown late at night.. Like this morning I woke up to see Charlie Chaplin's Monsiuer Viedoux, never saw it loved it. Your DVD interview is great, how about releasing more such as the ones you Did with Patricia Neal, Betty Hutton, Robert Mitchu/Jane Russell, and the recently departe Lauren Bacall!! I taped them but technology has changed !! & tapes are fading etc & another thing !!!! Please Please Please give one of the screens greatest actresses and Beauties more attention, SUSAN HAYWARD , you seem to be ignoring her. On her Birthday you showed 3 films in the afternoon!! SHE DESERVES TO BE STAR OF THE MONTH..Many of us eel this way, thanks for honoring Eleanor Parker, Kim Novak etc, but SUSAN was an Oscar winner, 5 nominations, a beauty big box office, Please include if you do, " My Foolish Heart", Back Street, & of course her 4 classsic performances , I Want To Live, Ill Cry Tommorrow, With A Song In My Heart, and Smash Up.. Please give SUSAN HAYWARD more attention.many of us are wondering why.. Shes fading almost into oblivion, SHE NEEDS TO BE SHOWN, please, STAR OF THE MONTH!! & thanks for all the info, ad tat great interview DVD. Louise Rainier was spectacular!! as was Kim Novak!!! What about Olivia De Haviland isnt she still alive?
                            A huge fan of TCM
                            Michael Panigrosso Fords, NJ 8/15
                            (I watch your classsics but Im at the new movies every Saturday.. theres some good stuff out there esp Chadwick Boesman, Jennifer Lawrence, and my favorite Viola Davis!!! Please pass this on, thanks

                                    It was like sitting down and talking with the star personally. Very interesting. Funny at times,poignant at others. Loved "getting to know" the star personally. Great interviews!

                                      Robert Osborne puts all his guests at ease when he speaks to them.
                                      Mr. Osborne asks all the questions that I would ask of his guests.
                                      I hope that Robert will continue to conduct these marvelous interviews for
                                      years to come.

                                                Robert Osborne is an excellent interviewer. He makes his guests feel respected and comfortable. When the tables are turned and Robert is interviewed by Alec Baldwin, he relates how and when he became a host of a classic film show. In effect, the job he has today did not exist. He got into the business as a member of the Desilu Players and worked for Lucille Ball. later he became a reporter for the Hollywood Reporter. I found his stories interesting and captivating.
